Color and Markings
(Farbe und Abzeichen)
The dogs color and markings must be described on the registration form. Permissible colors are:
Brown (liver) with no markings.
Brown with a few white or ticked markings on chest and legs.
Dark brown ticked with brown head, brown markings or spots. The basic color of such a dog is not white with brown or brown with white, but the markings are so intimately mixed brown and white to cause the unobstructive look so valuable for the practical use. The insides of the legs and the tip of the tail are often a lighter color. The color of the head is usually brown, but sometimes with a ticked nose, ticked forehead middle, and jowls.
Light brown ticked with brown head, brown markings or spots. In this coloring the white color predominates, making the dog appear lighter.
White with brown head markings, brown markings, or spots.
Black in the same shades as brown and brown ticked. A yellow tinge for lighter areas is permissible.
